    Psychology in the movies. What was the book?

    A long time, I heard/read about of a book (maybe there are more than one) about psycology in movies.

    To make a long story short, it is about explaining what movie character is affected by what disorder / neurosis in what movie.

    I also believe there has been threads of independent movies which were made especially to show certain disorder traits. Normal movies for the public not for psycology students I mean.

    Does all the above ring you any bell?

    I don't know which exact book but some in the genre:

    E-Motion Picture Magic

    Reel Therapy

    Rent Two Films and Let's Talk in the Morning: Using Popular Movies in Psychotherapy

    Also, see:

    Cinematherapy articles (movie profiles by the author of E-Motion Picture Magic)
    Cinematherapy links
    Cinematherapy bibliography

    But it's not all good, of course, since films can increase stigma/ignorance about mental disorders: ("Films are among the worst offenders.")
